Episode 3: Acadia

Parks by Mary Mathis, Cody Nelson

Episode notes

This episode focuses on the Wabanaki land that is now known as Acadia National Park. Parks guests Darren Ranco and Suzanne Greenlaw help us learn about the history of colonization around today’s parklands and how it affects the environment. They also discuss the contemporary efforts to increase tribes’ access to harvesting sweetgrass within the borders of the park and how decolonizing research is helping in that fight.
